Guia de Viagem - Holguín, Cuba
A província de Holguin é a quarta maior de Cuba. As montanhas da região são depósitos de níquel e cobalto que têm sido minados extensivamente. Assim, as indústrias de mineração são importantes para a produtividade e riqueza da área. As principais minas de níquel e locais de produção de vegetais estão situados em torno da cidade de Moa na costa norte, leste da cidade de Holguin.

As plantações de cana de açúcar e as hortas de frutas cítricas desempenham também um papel proeminente na economia local. Embora pequena, a indústria de pesca complementa o desempenho impressionante da província como produtora-chave na economia cubana.

A costa norte tem aumentado substancialmente seu desenvolvimento nos últimos 10 a 15 anos e as praias de Guardalavaca se estabelecem agora firmemente com operadoras de viagens estrangeiras.

Alturas de Mayabe
Limite das colinas a oito quilômetros para fora da cidade de Holguin. Uma das mais bonitas paisagens de Cuba.
Banes
Banes city, it has been said, was once the most Americanised town in all of Cuba. It was the headquarters of the omnipresent United Fruit Company; an American monolith that owned huge sugar plantations in the district and whose managers set about transforming half of Banes into a faithful reconstruction of an American town.

Banes was the birthplace of Fulgencio Batista, one of Cuba's Presidents, who was sometimes called the Guajirito de Banes.. but never to his face!

Rumour has it that Banes is the very same town where Fidel Castro spent a great deal of time as a young man, courting the woman that would become his first wife.

Although nowadays Banes city is somewhat faded and becalmed it is home to two of the province’s most significant museums, one is Bani Cuban-Indian Museum and the other is called Chorro de Maita Site Museum.

The drive from Guardalavaca to Banes is one of the most scenic in the province.

Definately worth a visit is Playa Puerto Rico Libre, for its prestine wildness and numerous caves.

Now Banes serves as a commercial centre for the surrounding agricultural district, which mainly produces sugarcane, but also bananas and other fruits. Produce is shipped from the city's small port, Embarcadero de Banes, which lies on Bahía (bay) de Banes, 3 mi (5 km) to the south. Pop. (2002) 34,452.
Cayo Naranjo
This beautiful cay is the centrepiece of the Bahia de Naranjo Nature Reserve and is the location of the Acuario Cayo Naranjo. The latter puts on a daily marine show at noon, and best of all an opportunity to swim with dolphins.
Cayo Saetia
This pristine cay, on the eastern side of the Bahía de Nipes, isn't terribly easy to get to, but if isolated and totally unpopulated, sugar-white cove beaches are of interest to you, it could certainly be worth the effort. An erstwhile exclusive game resort, the cay has an exceptional roster of flora and fauna, which includes not only deer and wild boar, but also a wild collection of exotics like antelopes, ostrich, water buffalo, and zebras. Most excursions include snorkeling, boat rides, jeep safaris, horseback riding, and lunch on the beach. There's one hotel on the cay, Villa Cayo Saetía, with a half-dozen nice cabanas. Cayo Saetía is about 90 minutes from Guardalavaca by car and just 20 minutes by helicopter (the preferred method of transport).
Cidade de Holguin
A cidade de Holguin, 760 quilômetros a sudeste de Havana, é ocupada e não é particularmente atrativa. Mas se você passar por ela, veja na principal praça seu teatro Art-Deco, galeria de arte, e a exposição eclética de manifestações históricas no Museu Provincial. O fino Museu de História Natural Carlos de la Torre, ao sul da praça na rua Maceo, é outra mansão colonial, possui uma grande coleção de cascas indígenas de caracol em cores deslumbrantes.
Ao oeste de Holguin há um ponto vantajoso, Loma de la Cruz, o qual oferece uma maravilhosa vista além da cidade e no outro lado a província.
Gibara
Gibara, named after the aboriginal word Jibá, meaning hump, was officially founded on 16th January 1817. Also known as La Villa Blanca, The White Town, this rather quaint city has a rich history & culture of which its people are most proud.

It has beautiful architectural sites, & neatly laid out homes, streets & parks. It is surrounded by lush countryside. Visitors discover the friendly & helpful nature of the locals (about 20k) is its biggest attraction.

There is, & probably always will be, some controversy about whether it was Gibara or Bariay Bay, in 1492, which first gave shelter to the ships of Christopher Columbus on his first trip to Cuba; and where he stated "It is the most beautiful land that human eyes ever saw."

If you are a bit of a latino film buff you should visit Gibara during the week it hosts the "Festival Internacional de Cine Pobre".

During the 19th & the first half of the 20th century, Gibara became the most important & developed port in the entire north eastern Cuba. It's railroad gave Holguin, Bayamo, Banes & Las Tunas access to traded goods. Gibara's economy today is based on textile production, fisheries, the making of snuff for export & domestic consumption, and tourism.

Tourists can enjoy wandering the street upon street of grand colonial buildings including the Fernando VII Fortress, Museum of Decorative Arts, History Museum, Natural History Museum, Casino Español (House of Culture), the theatre, Cuartelón Ruins, Cueva de los Panaderos, Calixto García Square & its miniature replica of the Statue of Liberty.

Pinares de Mayari
O distrito de Pinares de Mayari é um lugar ideal para os amantes da fauna e flora natural.
Playa Esmeralda
The idilic 1km beach gets its name from the clear deep-green (emerald green) waters that lap along these white sands. It is a perfect setting to enjoying the available windsurfing, sailing, diving and snorkeling. The beach is exclusive for the hotels' guests.

The stunningly beautiful Naranjo Bay Nature Reserve is a short stroll away. The aquarium gives the possibility of swimming with dolphins.
Playa Pesquero
Pesquero beach is very much the picture postcard tropical stetch of golden sand, lush vegetation and coral reefs that most long for. The beach is exclusive for the guests to the 3 modern hotels situated there.

A praia Yuraguanal é localizada na costa da província de Holguin a cinqüenta e três quilômetros da cidade, é famosa por sua branca e bela areia.
